BLUE SMOKE MEANS YOUR ENGINE BURNING OIL, BECAUSE OF WORN PISTON RINGS OR WORN VALVE GUIDES.

04 dodge ram 3500 diesel with turbo blowing smoke from vaule cover breather and tail pipe plus lack of power


Could be head gasket, piston, or other nasty issue. Smoke isn't a good sign. Run a compression check, that may help indicate where the problem is.

I have a 1992 dodge ram van 250 and its smoking really bad,


Black smoke is too much fuel, a rich mixture.
Blue smoke is oil burning, rings worn or valve seals.
White smoke is water, a leaking head gasket.

BLACK SMOKE COMING OUT OF TAIL PIPE OF A 1992 DODGE RAM B250


is it a gas engine or a diesel? it could mean two different things depending on the fuel type. black smoke in a diesel is either an air of a fuel problem. in a gas truck there should never be black smoke. it may be a dark blue smoke which is burning oil.

Smokes when idling


general rule of thumb, metal expands when warm, Blue smoke is oil, white smoke is either A: water in your exhaust, B: excessive fuel
If you have white whispy smoke any time you idle, i would be checking your catalic converter, If you have blue smoke on idle at the time of start till your motor warms up id suggest it would be one or more piston rings with slight wear (normally first sign of serious wear) generally you can tell oil smoke by the colour and the smell. it will smell rather burnt and will be obnoxious. if it is white then its more than likely "steam" and of course carbon monoxide, so it should generally disapate very quickly. which is usually ur catalic converter or in some cases more serious the first sign of a blown head gasket as you get coolant (or anti-freeze) leaking into the combustion chamber. that can be pressure tested by ur local mechanic.
I hope this has helped cheers

CAR BLOWING BLUE SMOKE FROM TAIL PIPE


Blue smoke indicates burning oil. So you oil getting into your cylinders somehow. Could be broken oil ring on one piston. If you have a lot of miles on your car or it has been overheated your engine may need an overhaul.

Lost power and smokes like the dickens


If it's white smoke, the head gasket is blown
If it's blue smoke, major problem, valve and piston and ring job.

2004 Dodge Ram Backfiring and blowing Muffler


White smoke....Means a Blown Head gasket.. Now its not bad enough to stop the vehicle from running but its bad enough, to blow out white smoke..now sooner or later it will stop completly, but you dont want to warp the cylinder heads too bad, then you will have to replace them also, so you might want to fix this problem as soon as possible...and the muffler keeps going bad, becasue it is filling up with coolant/ or too much water, which it is not designed to do..You also maybe doing damage to your cat. converters also...so be careful....And Goodluck, and keep me posted...
